After having two vans stolen in December we were incredibly thankful to have been gifted a replacement for one of them and our Retail team have been operating with three vans instead of four ever since.
Sadly, between 11.30pm and midnight on Friday 10th, May thieves struck again at the Distribution Centre in Binley, Coventry stealing six tyres from two of our vans. We are all incredibly sad that we have been the victim of another theft.
Every year we need to raise over £9 million to continue providing our services free of charge for people in Coventry and Warwickshire with terminal and life limiting illnesses and their families.
We rely on sales from our shops to raise at least £2 million of this and we need our vans to transport stock and collect large donations. It is heartbreaking for everyone at Myton to think that someone would knowingly steal from a charity.
With just one vehicle to cover our 27 shops across Coventry and Warwickshire, the team are asking for people’s patience at this time with furniture collections and deliveries.
If you want to support Myton you can donate good quality, saleable items to your nearest Myton shop or at one of our three hospices, or find out other ways to donate and fundraise here.
Can you help?

We are also hoping to replace our fundraising team’s van. They work tirelessly each year to organise our events which are a vital part of raising the £9.2 million needed to keep providing our services.
We are desperately in need of a newer, more reliable van for the team to use and would love to hear from anyone who could help us with a vehicle.
